Cardinal Grand Cross: Expanding our State of EMPOWERMENT

Right now, in the sky and in your inner world, we are experiencing what is known as a Grand Cross. For those who are not familiar with a Grand Cross, there are three different kinds.  The astrological signs are known as being fixed signs, mutable signs and cardinal signs.  So, depending on which astrological signs the Grand Cross occurs in, the fixed, mutable or cardinal energies influence the opportunity for expansion that the Grand Cross is making available for us.  Our current Grand Cross is happening in the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.  These are the signs of ACTION, and that is what is meant by "cardinal" signs.  When we have a Grand Cross, we are being activated by two sets of polarities that are intersecting each other through the center of their axes which looks like an actual cross in the sky.

In this Grand Cross, the axes that are being powerfully activated are the:

  • Aries/Libra Axis ~ Relationship Path of Conscious Equal Partnership
    • Aries ~ The Fierce Safeguarder (feminine) and The Fierce Protector (masculine)
    • Libra ~ The Peacekeeper (feminine) and The Beloved (masculine)
  • Cancer/Capricorn Axis ~ Relationship Path of Home, Family and Community
    • Cancer ~ The Great Mother (feminine) and The Good Father (masculine)
    • Capricorn ~ The Tribal Elders: Wise Woman (Grandmother - feminine) and Wise Man (Grandfather - masculine)
The energies in the Grand Cross are creating a significant amount of tension.  We have the tension from the opposition of the polarities, tension between the two energies on each side of the axis.
  • Aries opposite Libra
  • Cancer opposite Capricorn
And, we have another kind of tension being created between the energies that are at 90° angles to each other:
  • Uranus/Eris square Pluto
  • Uranus/Eris square Vesta
  • Jupiter square Pluto
  • Jupiter square Vesta
So, there are TWO kinds of tension, two kinds of force, being put on these energies. This is NOT a bad thing!  Think about when you are giving birth, the baby is coming through the birth canal. The tension and force that is used to push the baby through the birth canal is the same kind of force, the force of "active labor," in a cardinal Grand Cross. Then, on the other side, you have a beautiful GIFT ~ your baby. Another example of this kind of energy is the force that Earth uses to create a diamond. First, pressure turns decaying carbon-based life forms like plants into coal.  Then, that same kind of pressure turns the coal into a diamond. In this instance, the diamond is the beautiful GIFT.

All of these energies of force and pressure in this Grand Cross are opening a Gateway for something new to come through you and to manifest in your life.  With a cardinal Grand Cross, whatever is getting ready to come through you has to do with building your character.

Before I continue discussing the significance of this Grand Cross, I am taking a moment here to bring your attention to the TWO (2) Goddesses who are Present:  ERIS and VESTA.

Since the time of Patriarchy, Eris has been known as The Goddess of Discord.  In actuality, She is The Goddess of Fierce Truth.  Her presence allows you to speak your deep soul level truth about the subject matter of the House you will find Her in on your natal chart.  For me, She is conjunct my MidHeaven in the sign of Aries.  Thus, all the Sacred Work that I am known for in our world is birthed from my deepest Soul level of Truth.

Since the time of Patriarchy, Vesta has been known as The Goddess of Hearth and Home.  In the past, when communities cooked and communed around the fire, Vesta was present.  As our communities began to evolve and build homes with fireplaces, people began cooking in doors and the family gathered around the hearth. Here, Vesta was present as well, and statues of Vesta could be found on the mantle of the fireplace.  In more modern times, with electrical and microwave ovens available to us for cooking, you will find statues of Vesta in a kitchen.  In truth, Vesta is The Goddess of Creative Life Force ~ that creative energy which is also known as Shakti and Kundalini. The House of your natal chart in which She resides is continuously being infused by Her Shakti. Because of this, Vesta represents your deepest passion (2nd chakra) and also that to which you are most devoted.  We tend to be devoted to those things about which we are most passionate!  For me, Vesta is in my 3rd house in the sign of Virgo ~ the sign of the Goddess.  Virgo is also known as the sign of the Virgin, and this ascription derives from the Vestal Virgins in the ancient Goddess Temples. Thus, I am passionate about the Goddess.  I am devoted to the Goddess, and I am devoted to the reemergence of the Sacred Feminine on our Earth.  I am passionate about and devoted to being in Service to the Goddess, so that She can bring Her work to my community through me.

Now, let's look at what is going on with the energies in our current Grand Cross:

Uranus and Eris have been dancing closely with each other since June 2015. Over the past two years, they have danced closer and closer to each other until they both reached 23° Aries on March 28, 2017, they day after the New Moon in Aries at 7°.  Eris will stay at 23° Aries until November 22nd this year, when She will dip back to reactivate 22° through March 2, 2018. She will return to 23° Aries on March 3, 2018. While Eris will activate 24° in June 2018 and 25° in July 2022, She will dance back and forth over the 23° point in the sky until February 10, 2023. She continues to stay in Aries for at least another 20+ years.  Uranus (The Cosmic Liberator for Quantum Consciousness) will move out of Aries and into Taurus on May 16, 2018.  Between now and the time Uranus moves into Taurus, he will continue dancing with Eris.  Still, Uranus and Eris are sharing a close embrace (exact degree) since our recent New Moon in Aries until this Thursday, April 6, 2017.

The Uranus/Eris energies have been in opposition to Jupiter since 3 days after last year's Thanksgiving Day, November 27, 2016.  The opposition became exact on the day after Christmas, December 26, 2017 and again on March 3, 2017. Their next exact opposition will be on September 28, 2017. Jupiter will move out of the sign of Libra and into the sign of Taurus, where he will stay for the remainder of they year, on October 11, 2017.  With each exact opposition, we receive Jupiter's gift more deeply into the core of ourselves and more expansively into our multidimensional Self.

Jupiter is the Cosmic Guru, so anything he touches will expand.  As long as Jupiter stays in a Conscious space, anything that he expands will be a blessing and will be for your benefit.  Jupiter's intention is to be a Gift-Giver, so he is desiring to expand your blessings and expand your gifts. Thus, through the Cosmic Dance of Uranus (Cosmic Liberator) and Eris (Fierce Truthteller), we are experiencing within the depths of ourselves, "And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32 ISV) Jupiter, who is witnessing their dance from across the sky, is blessing us with the expansion of our inner freedom ~ moving us into Sovereignty ~ through the gift of realizing our deepest Soul Truth. On the relationship Path of Conscious Equal Partnership, Eris dances as the Aries Archetype of The Fierce Safeguarder while Uranus dances as the Aries Archetype of The Fierce Protector and Jupiter steps into the Libra Archetype of The Beloved.  The most exciting part of this is that while you are stepping into the Greatness of your Sovereignty as an individual, simultaneously the Collective Consciousness of Humanity is also stepping into the Consciousness of SOVEREIGNTY!

Meanwhile, Pluto and Vesta have been dancing their own unique choreography since the beginning of February and will continue to do so until April 10, 2017.  Vesta moves from Cancer into Leo on May 3, 2017.  Pluto begins to retrograde through Capricorn on April 26th until October 2nd. He will have moved almost imperceptibly from 19°CP23' to 16°CP51', barely over 2 1/2°s.  He will not return to 19°CP23' until January 23, 2018.

The Pluto (Cosmic Transformer) energy is regenerating (making new) your energy of Passion and Devotion and re-birthing Vesta's Creative Life Force within you, onto the planet and into the Collective Consciousness.  We are receiving the long-awaited medicine for the Wound of the Patriarchy! On the Relationship Path of Home, Family and Community, Pluto dances as the Capricorn Archetype of the Tribal Elder ~ The Grandfather who remembers the ancient Sacred Masculine before the culture of domination, which we know as Patriarchy, usurped the Power of the Sacred Masculine and perverted it out of its greed and selfishness. Vesta dances as the Cancer Archetype of the Great Mother. The Great Mother is all-forgiving and has no desire to punish the abuses of Patriarchy that have transpired over the past 50,000 years, since the fall of Atlantis.  She desires to HEAL the Wound of the Patriarchy through Unconditional LOVE.  The Wound of the Patriarchy is festering in the Unconsciousness (Shadow) of every man, woman and child on the planet.  Its resonance remains embedded within the Collective Consciousness of Humanity.  We come to know the presence of this wound through our Inner Child. As important as it is for the Inner Child to be LOVED, it is more important for the Inner Child to know that it has been forgiven for just being itself.  It is through the Sacred Masculine energy that the Great Mother can offer healing to Her children.  I offer this Sacred Work through the mirror of the father/daughter relationship.  You can read about the profound experiences some of my clients are having on my TESTIMONIALS page. (PERSONAL NOTE: As an aside, my personal relationship path is the Path of Home, Family and Community. My Sun is in Capricorn, thus I am an Elder, and my Moon and North Node are in Cancer, my ancient lineage is from The Great Mother.  This Sacred Work of healing the Wound of the Patriarchy through the mirror of the father/daughter relationship aligns with both my relationship path AND my passion and devotion from Vesta in Virgo/3rd house.)

SO ... what is the BIG PICTURE of our current Grand Cross? Simply stated, by healing the Wound of the Patriarchy we can reclaim our deepest Soul Truth and step into the Greatness of our SOVEREIGNTY!  We are being given every frequency we require to achieve this expanded state of EMPOWERMENT.

By the way, this directive cannot and will not fail!  I remind you that Saturn is conjoined with our Galactic Center in Sagittarius (the sign of Truth and Integrity). Saturn is building the foundation upon which the Wound of the Patriarchy will be healed gracefully through love, compassion and forgiveness, so that the re-emergence of the Sacred Feminine can be fully actualized.  With the restoration of  the Sacred Masculine energy and the re-emergence of the Sacred Feminine energy, the Inner Masculine and the Inner Feminine within all of Humanity will once more be balanced. Just to ensure the success of this Cosmic Decree, the Sophia-Christ Consciousness is being poured into us individually and globally through the Heart of our Galaxy.

If you would like to know how this current Grand Cross is impacting you, I invite you schedule Shamanic AstroSOL™ reading with me.  When you use the CODE: GRAND CROSS, I will give you a 20% discount.  This offer expires on the Full Moon in Libra, April 11th.

Many blessings to each of you!

The Illuminating Gift of the Goddess

Our Full Moon in VIRGO is POWER PACKED!  So many energies are converging simultaneously to support the paradigm shift that is unfolding in the Collective Consciousness of Humanity.  Before we dive-in, let's take a step back to look at some of the cycles that have been occurring in the Virgo/Pisces axis which have led us here.

Since approximately mid October of 2015, the North Node began its journey through Virgo.  The North Node journey has been about realigning the Collective Consciousness with the Ancient Wisdom of the Goddess. It has been adapting and fine-tuning the consciousness of our local communities, as our modern day tribes, for receiving a "grass roots" reseeding of the Goddess Wisdom onto the planet.  Over the past year and a half, the reseeding has taken root in the Collective Consciousness. The seeds of Goddess Wisdom have germinated.  We can now recognize the Presence of the Goddess Wisdom through Her sprouts.

From the beginning of 2015, before the North Node moved into Virgo, the soil of the Collective Consciousness was being tilled in preparation for the reseeding by the energies of Mars (1/13 - 2/20) and Venus (1/28 - 2/20) from Pisces as Sacred Helpmates. The Heirloom Seeds of the Ancient Wisdom that would be reseeded were going through the threshing and winnowing process by Mercury (3/14 - 3/31) from Pisces. Together, the energies of Venus (7-19 - 7/31), Mercury (8/8 - 8/27) and Sun (8/24 - 9/23) in Virgo fertilized the soil of the Collective Consciousness. Mars in Virgo (9/26 - 11/29) shared His energies as Light. Jupiter in Virgo (8/12/15 - 9/9/16) offered His energies as food. Meanwhile, the energies of Neptune had been, and continues to be, water the soil of Collective Consciousness from Cosmic Consciousness in Pisces.  (SIDE NOTE: It is no surprise that our Water Protectors have come into and remain in our public consciousness. Neptune in Pisces)

Through 2016, Mercury and Venus continued to nurture and nourish the growing Consciousness of Goddess Wisdom as they made their visits through Virgo and Pisces.

We began 2017 with Mars in Pisces, and Venus quickly joined Him there. In January, together again as Sacred Helpmates, Mars and Venus were preparing Virgo to receive the Goddess Wisdom that would be activated by the upcoming March Venus Retrograde cycle which will reach that point (26°)  in Cosmic Consciousness on April 15th that is opposite this Full Moon in Virgo (20°).

As I discuss in my post, Venus Retrograde Vision Quest, we are being realigned with and re-empowered by the Sacred Feminine AND we are receiving GIFTS from the GODDESS as the reemergence of Goddess Wisdom through NEW Aquarian Goddess Archetypes.  This Full Moon in Virgo is ILLUMINATING our Collective Consciousness to this shifting paradigm, so that we can be AWARE of this Wisdom and consciously choose to step into Its power.

In the brief period of time since the beginning of 2017, we have experienced:

Our Galactic Center is located at 26° of Sagittarius.  It is the second most powerful point on your natal chart next to the Sun.  Just as the Sun represents our Heart, the Galactic Center represents the Heart of our Galaxy.  It is the Sun of our Sun.

Saturn has been exactly conjoined with the Galactic Center (GC) since February 18th.  On March 6th, Saturn moved to 27°.  However, Saturn will retrograde back over the GC in May and November before moving out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn. Keywords for Saturn that are often overlooked are WISDOM and DESTINY.  Saturn requires patience, and through patience, we will be receiving The Gifts from the Goddess, as the reemergence of Goddess Wisdom through NEW Aquarian Goddess Archetypes, directly from the Sacred Feminine right through our Galactic Center ALL YEAR!

Saturn is the Cosmic Gatekeeper.  He allows all things from the Cosmos to come through and be made manifest on Earth.  He provides the foundation for that which we create in the same way that a loom is the foundation for a tapestry, a canvas is the foundation for a painting, a choreography is the foundation for a dance, or an architectural design is the foundation for a building.

With Saturn conjoined the Galactic Center, a cosmic gateway has been opened to allow us to receive the FIRE (Wisdom) from "the Gods."  This FIRE is initiating our Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine into an energetically NEW foundation ~ a foundation of Higher Resonance ~ from which to engage with the world and Humanity.  ALL of this Expansion of the Collective Consciousness is connected.  They are fractals of our Ascension Process.  And ... there is MORE!

At this time of our Full Moon in Virgo:

  • the Moon is square SATURN (27°16' Sagittarius)
  • the Moon is trine PLUTO (19°01' Capricorn)
  • the Moon is sextile VESTA (20°13' Cancer)
    • Pluto (Capricorn) is opposite Vesta (Cancer)
  • the Moon is opposite MERCURY (26°17' Pisces)
  • the Moon is opposite PALLAS (23°51' Pisces) and CHIRON (24°33 Pisces)
  • the Sun (21°36' Pisces) is conjoined PALLAS, CHIRON and MERCURY

HOLY SMOKES!  How can our little minds comprehend the power that is being illuminated within us right now?!?!  It can't!!!  It would be a total circuit overload of our electrical system (brain and nervous system).  Thankfully, we do not have to be concerned about this.  With Mercury in Pisces, as the Messenger of the Gods, He is acting as a transformer to step down the voltage of this electrical current, so that we CAN receive all that we are intended to receive.

Before I close, I would like to take a little time to share with you the contributions of Vesta, Pallas and Chiron to the Illumination of our Collective Consciousness at this Full Moon in Virgo.  Through them, we are discovering that, just as our local communities are our modern-day tribes, our physical bodies ~ which are Consciousness ~ are our modern-day Goddess Temples.

Vesta is a co-ruler of Virgo.  She is the aspect of the Goddess that we know as SHAKTI ~ Kundalini. She is the fire within us that drives us towards the Sacred.  She is our courage and our willingness to surrender to keep the fire alive.Vesta is the driving force behind our Ascension Process.  As She aligns Her energy with the Moon (Divine Mother), She is amplifying the edict from the Sacred Feminine to balance the power between the Masculine and the Feminine.

Pallas is the Goddess of Wisdom and Self-Defense.  She has long been split from Athena, the Warrior Goddess, whose power was usurped by Patriarchy.  Before Her split, Pallas Athena was the Goddess of Wisdom and Armed Resistance.  After Her split, Athena's "armed resistance" was shifted through the Patriarchy into the energy of aggression and war.
The Greek goddess Athena identified with the patriarchy and usually cast her power and support on their side during any dispute. In the first jury trial in recorded history, she cast the deciding vote to acquit Orestes of the murdering his mother to avenge his father's death. Athena was persuaded by Apollo's argument in Orestes' defense that the death of a mother was of less importance than a father's death since the woman simply nurtured the seed while it was actually the man who planted it. Motherless herself, the goddess Athena usually placed patriarchal principles above maternal bonds. ~ Goddess Gift
With the emergence of the Aquarian Goddess Archetype for Aries, Athena will no longer act out as the aggressor. In the age of the Aquarian Goddess, Pallas and Athena will reunite to use Their Wisdom to deal with and resolve conflict from a place of nonviolence. Pallas's position in Pisces at this Full Moon in Virgo is a foreshadowing of Her integration with Athena through the remaining Venus Retrograde cycles in Aries.

Chiron represents our Sacred Wound which becomes our Sacred Gift ~ our Shamanic Medicine.  The Sacred Wound represents the wounds of the Patriarchy.  As we heal these wounds, we access their gifts and acquire our Shamanic Medicine. In Pisces at this Full Moon in Virgo, Chiron is assisting Mercury as we receive the Ancient Goddess Wisdom from Cosmic Consciousness and assimilate and harmonize it within both the Collective Consciousness and our Individual Consciousness.

I know this Full Moon in Virgo may feel like you are trying to surf a Tsunami wave. Trust and Know that the Cosmos has your back. You will not be knocked over. You will not be pulled under.  Should you require any support, I invite you to schedule a Shamanic AstroSOL™ reading with me.

Be sure to go out and celebrate this Full Moon!  I will be dancing around a fire under the light of the moon with some new sisters.

Many blessings to you!

Venus Retrograde Vision Quest

Hello, Beloveds!

Much is being shared about our current Venus retrograde cycle.  With my natal Mercury in Aquarius, I have come to trust my innate ability to communicate with the Cosmos on a multi-dimensional level. Thus, what I have to share with you on this cycle may very likely be much different than what others are sharing, as the lens through which I perceive is different. Remember the parable of the blind men and the elephant.  We all receive different aspects of Truth, and all are equally valuable. It is my prayer that my offering will resonate with your Heart and will support you as Venus facilitates your Vision Quest.

Venus retrograde cycles are very unique because we find cycles within cycles.  This is due to the path of the pentagram that Venus traces in the sky, thus the pentagram being an ancient symbol for the Sacred Feminine.  When Venus activates a zodiac sign, She visits that sign every 8 years over the course of 152 years.  During that 152 years, Venus will journey through the sign TWICE, starting from the end of the sign (29 or 28°) moving "backwards" to the beginning of the sign (1 or 0°).  It takes Venus THIRTEEN 8-year cycles to make each journey.  At about the mid-point of the first journey, Her second journey begins, so that for SIX of the 8-year cycles, the two journeys overlap each other.  Venus's activation of the zodiac sign is complete after TWENTY 8-year cycles. NINETY-NINE years after the completion of a zodiac sign's activation, Venus will step into that sign again to begin a new 152 year activation at a higher frequency.

Our current Venus retrograde cycle is activating TWO zodiac signs simultaneously: Aries & Pisces.  

The activation of Aries began back in 1905.

Consider that the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution ~ granting American women the right to vote ~ was ratified in August 1920! The Sun was in Leo. The Divine Father shared His FIRE with the Divine Mother.  Mars was in Scorpio while Venus was in Virgo.  The Sacred Masculine empowered the Sacred Feminine and the Goddess!  This shift in Consciousness was a resounding, "YES ~ the power of the Feminine and the Masculine  CAN co-exist!"

Venus completed Her first journey through Aries in 2001, and She began Her second journey through Aries in 1961. For me, being born in 1963, I am of the generation that came in for Venus's second journey through Aries.  All of us who have been born since 1905 have embodied the Ancient Feminine Warriors ~ the Amazon Women. We are ushering in the higher frequency and the NEW Aquarian Goddess Archetype for Aries ~ the Fierce Safeguarder. In fact, my natal Venus (my Inner Goddess) is in Sagittarius ~ the highest resonance of the Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius).  The Aquarian Goddess Archetype for Aries will be fully manifested on the planet in thirty years, 2057.

We are beginning to see more and more glimpses of Her now emerging from our Collective Consciousness onto the world's stage.

The Fierce Safeguarder showed Herself to us in 2016 as the Israeli and Palestinian women marched to Wage Peace.  The Aquarian Goddess Archetype for Aries is not aligned with war, rage and violence. She is the bringer of Peace, Nonviolence and Protection.  She IS the change we have been waiting for!

We have witnessed the Presence of the Fierce Safeguarder at Standing Rock amongst the Water Protectors.  She revealed Herself through both men and women.  Every one of us has an Inner Feminine, and She is reemerging through all of Humanity. The Indigenous People have retained their connection with the Ancient Wisdom.  We can look to them as Wayshowers, modelling to us what it looks like to embody the Sacred Feminine and step out in Dharma, Right Action, from Her space.

Most recently, the Fierce Safeguarder made an appearance on International Womens Day as this "Fearless Girl," a symbol of women's empowerment.   This is another manifestation of the paradigm shift away from Patriarchy into a balanced place where the power of the Feminine and the Masculine are co-existing.  Venus rules money, so this beautiful piece of art, also ruled by Venus, is an auspicious sign from the Sacred Feminine.

In 2009, after 99 years, Venus once again stepped into the sign of Pisces.  As you now know, the activation of Pisces will require 152 years to complete.  Those of us who are incarnated on the planet at this time will not see the full manifestation of this paradigm shift in our lifetimes.  We can, however, tap into it during these retrograde cycles through our vision quests. The last activation of Pisces began in 1758 and completed in 1910.  During that period, Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) ~
... promoted Transcendentalist thought, which emphasized experiencing God through lived experience and intuition ... Inspired by the powerful language of Romanticism, he espoused embracing the Spirit without the rigidity of law ... he believed that life was a miracle and that God dwells in all things. ~ The Association of Religion Data Archives
Emerson's promotion of Transcendentalism is a beautiful expression of the Venus Retrograde in Pisces: letting go of the false power of religious doctrine and law.

This new activation of Pisces will raise the frequency of the Ancient Compassionate One to the NEW Aquarian Goddess Archetype for Pisces ~ the Heart Healer.  LOVE can not flow through a Heart of stone. The Heart Healer must break open the Hearts of Humanity, so that they can be healed.  Even for those of us who have spent our lives walking the Healing Path, we have places within our Hearts that are still calcified. The Heart Healer will work with us, not on us, to break up and wash away the calcifications.  While this process is unfolding, the Fierce Safeguarder will have shifted from the role of defender under the Amazon Woman to the role of safeguarder and preserver to support the Heart Healer.

Venus as represented by Inanna

On March 4th, Venus began Her descent into the Underworld.  Just as Inanna, Queen of Heaven, made Her descent into the Underworld to visit Her sister, Erishkegal, Queen of the Dead, we too are on a journey into the darkness.  This darkness is similar to the portion of the iceberg that is hidden under the ocean.  It is there, yet we do not see it.  This journey is one of excavation.  What jewels will we find in the Underworld that we can bring up to the surface and into the Light?

During a Venus retrograde cycle, the jewels that we discover are the remembrances of Ancient Wisdom that has long been forgotten. This Ancient Wisdom relates to LOVE (Venus).
  • The truth is that LOVE is GENEROUS.  
  • The truth is that LOVE is expressed through both the masculine and the feminine energies.  
  • The truth is that all of us are on a journey to that place within ourselves where we can once more feel safe to fully stand in LOVE and allow LOVE to express through us.
During a Venus retrograde cycle, we are remembering HOW we are LOVE (Source), HOW we embody LOVE (God/Goddess) and what we truly value (authenticity).

As Inanna descended into the Underworld, She passed through 7 gateways.  For the Aquarian Aries Archetype, this is the third time (the deepest letting go) that Venus/Inanna is passing through the First Gateway.  For the Aquarian Pisces Archetype, Venus/Inanna is the passing through the Second Gateway.  At each gateway, Inanna is asked to relinquish a symbol of Her POWER.  At the First Gateway, represented by the Crown Chakra, Inanna let go of Her Crown.  At the Second Gateway (Third Eye Chakra), She let go of Her necklace of precious stones.  These physical symbols are representations of FALSE power; power that is easily misused and abused.  Power that has been misused and abused by Patriarchy for the past 30,000 years.  We are on a journey to reclaim our AUTHENTIC power and restore the balance of power between the Masculine and Feminine.  When the balance is restored, the Masculine and Feminine can enter into Sacred Union where the fullest expression of LOVE is found.

In Aries (the ruler of the 1st house), these symbols of FALSE POWER are related to the masks we use to project ourselves to the world, so that we can hide our LACK OF:
  • self-esteem
  • self-value
  • self-worth
  • self-confidence
  • self-respect
  • self-love
In Pisces (the ruler of the 12th house), these symbols of  FALSE POWER are related to our:
  • secret motives
  • hidden agendas
  • hidden knowledge
  • hidden personality
  • hidden fears
Ironically, these symbols of FALSE POWER are dis-empowering.  They confine us in ways that prevent us from fully standing in LOVE, which is our only source of freedom.
  • What symbols of your false power did you let go of in April 2009?
  • What symbols of your false power are you being asked to relinquish now?
  • What are you witnessing in regard to the letting go of false power in our world today?

The Goddess is working through each of us to birth Her Aquarian Archetypes onto the planet. The Vision Quest that She is facilitating for us will complete on May 19th.  What will be your new embodiment of the Fierce Safeguarder and the Heart Healer?  How will you allow Them to express Themselves through you?  We are the proverbial "blind men" on this journey.  Please come back here to share your experience of these Aquarian Goddess Archetypes with us, so that we can have a more expansive understanding of Their Presence.

If you are desiring more insight into the symbols of power that you are being asked to let go of during this Venus Retrograde Vision Quest, I invite you to schedule a Shamanic AstroSOL™ reading with me.  When you use the code, INANNA, I will give you a 20% discount.  This offer is valid through May 19, 2007.

Many blessings to each of you!

FINAL Activation of The Path of the Help-Mate

Hello, Embodiments of LOVE!

The gateway for continuing to receive the POWERFUL INFLUX of energies from this final activation (SOLar Eclipse) of the Virgo/Pisces relationship axis ~ The Path of the Helpmate ~ remains open through tomorrow.  The effects of this activation will continue to reveal themselves to you over the next six months.

The Path of the Help-Mate is about finding someone who is as equally dedicated to their sacred work as you are to yours and/or supports you in your sacred work.  These relationships are all about the sacred work.  Boyfriend/girlfriend and husband/wife relationships are often the kind of relationships where the focus is on the partner rather than the work. This focus on the partner can be a disservice to the sacred work.  In these kinds of relationships, the sacred work can be put on the back burner or given up entirely. Certainly, there are exceptions to this.  Disciple/Guru relationships are a very good example of The Path of the Helpmate.  Both you, as the Disciple, and your Guru are focused on and dedicated to your sacred work, often being Self-Actualization/Enlightenment.  Other kinds of relationships that can work well on The Path of the Helpmate are those we form in women circles.  The women in your circle are as dedicated to the Circle's sacred work as you are.  The key to this path is that both partners do not have to be doing the SAME sacred work. However, they both must have the same commitment and devotion to their sacred work.

The sacred work is the work you were born to do.  The work is a manifestation of your purpose, You love to do this work; it brings you joy and is fueled by your passion.  The sacred work is more important than anything else in your life: fame, position, money and security. It takes precedence over your other relationships, sometimes even over the Helpmate relationship itself.  For instance, my sister, our friend and I co-founded a non-profit school for children with Autism, The Chase Academy. While I enjoyed the creative aspect of starting up the school and worked for the school from time-to-time, it is not my sacred work.  It is my sister's sacred work.  She eat, drinks and sleeps this work. There is no conversation you can have with her that does not end up coming back to this work.  Our friend is my sister's Helpmate. She is committed to and supports the work.  Most importantly, she is a steadfast supporter of my sister in the work.  All the same, our friend does not eat, drink and sleep the work.

As I continue to discuss the activation of The Path of the Helpmate, it is essential for you to know what your sacred work is and who your helpmate(s) are, so that you can view them through the lens of what I am sharing.  By doing this, my intention is for you to gain some wisdom and clarity around how this Path's activations over the past two years have expanded you and shown up in your life.

Because the February 26, 2017 SOLar Eclipse at 8°12' of Pisces is the FINAL activation of the Virgo/Pisces axis, I feel it is important to look closely at the cycle we are completing.  This cycle began back in 2015.  Allow yourself to really drop-in deeply to remember what you were experiencing at each of these eclipses.  If you are familiar with your natal astrological chart, look at it to discover if any of these eclipses conjoined planets in your chart, activating their shamanic medicine for you as well.  Each eclipse was an activation of The Path of The Helpmate AND a personal Initiation for you! Each succeeding Initiation further expanded your Consciousness. With this FINAL activation and Initiation, you are receiving the Wisdom and Gifts of this transformation in Consciousness.

Here are the key points in the cycle (from The AstroTwins: Ophira and Tali Edut):
  • 3/20/15   ~   SOLar Eclipse   ~   29°PI27'
  • 9/13/15   ~   SOLar Eclipse   ~   20°VI10'
  • 3/09/16   ~   SOLar Eclipse   ~   18°PI56'
  • 9/01/16   ~   SOLar Eclipse   ~   09°VI21'
  • 9/16/16   ~   Lunar Eclipse    ~   24°PI20'
  • 2/26/17   ~   SOLar Eclipse   ~   08°PI12'

Last year, I wrote a blog post about the SOLar Eclipse activation of Pisces that was occurring at that time.  I encourage you to (re)read it to help you on your journey of discovery through this Virgo/Pisces cycle.  The most interesting point for me is that last year's SOLar Eclipse in Pisces coincided with MahaShivratri as does this FINAL activation.
The fourteenth day of every lunar month, or the day before the new moon, is known as Shivratri. Among all the twelve Shivratris that occur in a calendar year, Mahashivratri, the one that occurs in February-March is of the most spiritual significance. On this night, the northern hemisphere of the planet is positioned in such a way that there is a natural upsurge of energy in a human being. This is a day when nature is pushing one towards one’s spiritual peak. ~ Isha
A SOLar Eclipse always occurs on a New Moon.  The New Moon occurs when the Moon passes in front of the Sun and blocks out most of the Sun's light.  The effect of this is like a Cosmic "power outage."  The darkness of the power outage casts a shadow on our lives. A SOLar Eclipse is a good opportunity for us to:
  • tie-off any loose ends that we may have in our lives, thereby completing any unfinished business,
  • look within ourselves to become more aligned with our Authentic Self, and most especially,
  • be conscious of what we are inspired/desire to create, so that we can choose the seeds we will plant.

So, let's look a little closer at what this FINAL activation of The Path of the Helpmate means for Humanity.  This SOLar Eclipse is once again in Pisces, ruler of the 12th House, both ruled by the planet Neptune.  Pisces represents the Ocean of Consciousness ~ all that is Unmanifest ~ Source ~ the abode of God and Goddess. The 12th house represents the Collective Unconscious and our personal unconscious. The planet Neptune is our Cosmic Pipeline to Source, and in the 12th house, a pipeline into our unconscious.  While Lunar Eclipses, which occur at the Full Moon, are associated with Illuminating our Shadow Self, I feel SOLar Eclipses are an even more powerful opportunity for this deep-dive into our unconscious to discover our false beliefs. Indeed, our current SOLar Eclipse in Pisces, which is conjunct transiting Neptune, is a uniquely auspicious opportunity for this transformational work, a "sacred work" which re-empowers us (Pluto in Virgo opposite the Eclipse). At this time of the SOLar Eclipse, which is also conjunct the South Node (karma), we can weed out our negative samskaras, so that, with the Grace of MahaShivaratri, we can become liberated from samsara (the cycle of death and rebirth).
According to yogic philosophy, we’re born with a karmic inheritance of mental and emotional patterns ~ known as samskaras ~ through which we cycle over and over again during our lives. ... In addition to being generalized patterns, samskaras are individual impressions, ideas, or actions; taken together, our samskaras make up our conditioning. Repeating samskaras reinforces them, creating a groove that is difficult to resist. Samskaras can be positive ~ imagine the selfless acts of Mother Theresa. They can also be negative, as in the self-lacerating mental patterns that underlie low self-esteem and self-destructive relationships. The negative samskaras are what hinder our positive evolution. ~ Yoga Journal
For me personally, right now, my progressed Sun (Divine Father ~ Shiva) is in Pisces and my progressed Moon (Divine Mother ~Shakti) is in Virgo.  YES, They are currently on the Virgo/Pisces axis.  Together, They are my Sacred Helpmates. They have helped me to clarify my sacred work. With my North Node at 29° Cancer in my 1st House of the Self, my sacred work is healing and nurturing my Inner Child.  Every one of you become my Helpmate in this endeavor.  That is because my Mercury is in Aquarius in the 7th House of Partnerships.  By communicating with you, and learning about you through your Shamanic astrological charts, I learn about myself.  By working with you to uncover the shadow aspects your father-daughter relationship is mirroring to you, so that you can identify your patriarchal wound(s) and the false belief(s) you internalized because of it/them, you are learning about and healing your Inner Child.  In turn, this helps me to learn more about my Inner Child, so that I can better nurture her.

This SOLar Eclipse is also conjunct my natal Chiron (Pisces) and opposite my natal Pluto (Virgo).  I have been diving deep into my unconscious, uncovering my shadow aspects and discovering my patriarchal wounds and false beliefs. With the Shamanic medicine of my natal Chiron being infused with a new level of potency, this has been a significantly healing time for my Inner Child.  More than that, my natal Pluto has been dynamically energized, so this healing for my Inner Child has been a phenomenal experience of renewal for me.  My Inner Child has been reborn as a Child of the Goddess (Virgo).  More so, the entire process has fully-awakened (MahaShivratri) my Inner High Priestess (Virgo), the Wisdom and Gift I have received from this transformation in Consciousness.

If you are excited about the Initiation you have received and would like a deeper understanding and more clarity, I invite you to schedule a Shamanic AstroSOL reading with me.  When you use the code, SHIVA, I will give you a 20% discount.  This offer is valid through March 12, 2007 ~ Full Moon in Virgo.

Today is all about the Cosmic LOVERS, and how They are showing up within YOU!  With Mars (Inner God/Masculine) and Venus (Inner Goddess/Feminine) both being in the sign of Aries today, this Valentine's Day is truly about your Inner Relationship. Ultimately, since Aries is the ruler of the First House, the focus for the Cosmic LOVERS on this Valentine's Day is your capacity for Self~LOVE,  Self~LOVE is THE greatest gift we can give to Humanity because when we LOVE ourselves, we are transmitting a kind of permission to the Collective Consciousness for others to love themselves too.

Our ability to LOVE ourselves is often influenced by the inner wounds we carry.  For both men and women, the past 6,000 years of the Patriarchal Warrior defending all that he has claimed for himself as he has plundered and pillaged through families and communities across the planet has left DEEP Patriarchal Wounds within the Feminine.  We each carry the Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine principles within us, so all people ~ men and women ~ are uncovering, healing and transforming the Patriarchal Wounds.  

Mars and Venus in Aries is the perfect occasion to restore the balance between our Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine.  Aries/Libra is the Path of Conscious Equal Partnership.  We must be conscious of ourself (Aries) before we can become conscious of our partner (Libra).  Mars is the Ruler of Aries, and Venus is the Ruler of Libra.  The Cosmic LOVERS are GIFTING us with a beautiful opportunity to consciously bring our Inner Masculine and our Inner Feminine into balance ~ into Equal Partnership.  The Inner Masculine has chosen to step up and take Its place as a Sacred Warrior.  It has turned Its back on the Patriarchal Warrior.  Being the Sacred Warrior, defending the Cosmic Order, is the Noble Cause It now fights for.  The Inner Masculine will protect the Inner Feminine as Their partnership is reestablished in Equality through collaboration and cooperation. Together, They will level the playing field of Hierarchy. The Inner Masculine will safeguard and preserve the non-hierarchical Realm of Relationship in which the Cosmic LOVERS will initiate mutual honor, empower equal value, promote peace and rediscover personal truth.

With Jupiter (Cosmic Guru) in Libra, Humanity has stepped into The Golden Age of Relationship. Jupiter is beaming across the sky at the Cosmic LOVERS to support them in conscious-equal-partnership and to expand the conscious ways of engaging relationship. Jupiter is now in retrograde, providing the Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine the time and space required to reveal to Them just where within your Inner Relationship the weeds of Patriarchy continue to undermine your capacity for Self-LOVE. Your window for Self-Discovery will remain open until approximately March 10th when Mars will move from Aries into Taurus.  Look to February 23rd to March 4th for some revolutionary insights and inspiration for committing to your REAL Self, living an authentic life, reclaiming your Sovereignty and stepping into Radical Self-LOVE.

If you desire insight into the Patriarchal Wounds that are impeding the expansion of your Self-LOVE, I invite you to schedule a Shamanic AstroSOL™ reading with me. 

Many blessings to you upon your journey!

The Pentagram of the Lunar Eclipse

On tonight's Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Leo, there is a pentagram (5 pointed star) being activated in the heavens above us. The Pentagram is an ancient symbol for the Goddess. In fact, the planet Venus who represents the Goddess, completes a path in the sky in the form of a pentagram every 8 years.

If you watched the movie, The DaVinci Code, you will recall that within the first few scenes of the movie, the character Robert Langdon explains to Fache that the pentagram is an ancient symbol for the Sacred Feminine:
"The pentacle," Langdon clarified, "is a pre-Christian symbol that relates to Nature worship. The ancients envisioned their world in two halves - masculine and feminine. Their gods and goddesses worked to keep a balance of power. Yin and yang. When male and female were balanced, there was harmony in the world. When they were unbalanced, there was chaos". 
Langdon motioned to Saunière's stomach. "This pentacle is representative of the female half of all things— a concept religious historians call the 'sacred feminine' or the 'divine goddess.' Saunière, of all people, would know this."
"Saunière drew a goddess symbol on his stomach?"  
Langdon had to admit, it seemed odd. "In its most specific interpretation, the pentacle symbolizes Venus— the goddess of female sexual love and beauty".
(NOTE: The pentacle is a pentagram enclosed in a circle.)
The 5 points of the star that are being activated tonight are the Sun (Aquarius) and Moon (Leo) opposition, the Uranus (Aries) and Jupiter (Libra) opposition, and Saturn (Sagittarius).

Jamie Partridge, Astrology King

Truly, the Wisdom of the Goddess is being expanded within the Collective Consciousness of Humanity AND the restoration of the balance of power between the masculine and feminine is actively being experienced on the planet.

While those egos that remain entrenched in Patriarchy may find this to be a shocking revolution, those Spiritual beings who incarnated to be in Service to the Goddess are reveling in the Freedom that this Cosmic Revolution of LOVE portends.

In my personal chart, my Natal Mars ~ my Inner Masculine and Sacred Helpmate, is at a near exact (1° orb) conjunction with the Moon.  The Divine Mother (Luna) is pouring Her Illuminating power into my Inner Masculine.  This infusion from the Divine Mother is allowing my Inner Masculine to EMPOWER my Inner Feminine by radiating His creative inspiration and self-confidence to Her. By the completion of this Lunar Eclipse (August), they will walk the "royal path" together, knowing themselves to be Enlightened.  As Enlightened aspects of Divinity, they will pass on their greatest GIFT to Humanity: empowering others with the radiance of who They are.

If you are inspired to know which Gift the Goddess is bestowing upon you, contact me NOW to schedule a Shamanic AstroSOL™ reading.

Many blessings to you!

Mastery Path of Relationship Equality

This Friday, February 10th, will be a Full Moon in Leo.  We are already within the window of being influenced by its energies.  The impact of this full moon is being highly magnified by the Lunar Eclipse, the first eclipse of this year. Have you noticed any sleep issues over the past couple of nights?  I would attribute them to the intensity of our current full moon/eclipse frequencies.

I imagine the difference between the effects of a full moon and an eclipse as the difference between lighting a match (full moon) versus lighting a blow torch (eclipse)!  When their energies combine, it is like throwing gasoline (eclipse) on a fire (full moon).  WOW!  What a surprise!!!  Yes, eclipses are known to bring big surprises.

Although many people are uncomfortable with the intensity of eclipse energies, the wonderful thing about an eclipse is that it moves us closer to our Soul's Purpose.  It does this by getting us back on the right path ~ the path that our Soul chose to journey to achieve its mission.  This action often exposes some deep Truths that are ready and desiring to be integrated within us.

An astrological axis is like a seesaw. Within a 360° astrological chart, an axis is composed of the two signs that are opposite each other. They are 180° apart.  When the archetypes are out of balance, the axis is metaphorically similar to the first seesaw in the picture above.  Internally, it feels like the archetypes of the two signs are playing a game of tug-of-war! When the archetypes are balanced, the axis is similar to the second seesaw in the picture. Achieving balance between the conflicting archetypes is only the first step.  The Soul's goal is to alchemize their energies to create a higher expression ~ something new.  We can imagine the process like this:

The archetypical energies of  the Leo/Aquarius axis were activated during the Aquarius New Moon (January 27th).  Since then, the energies have been working together within us to find a new equilibrium point. They have created a new consciousness ~ a paradigm shift. Now at our Leo Full Moon, our new consciousness is being illuminated through our relationships.  What changes in your relationships have you noticed over the past two weeks? Prepare yourself for some potential big shifts, thanks to the Lunar Eclipse.

The Leo/Aquarius axis is known as the Mastery Path of Relationship Equality. Leo is the sign of Radical Radiant Self-love.  Aquarius is the sign of  The Humanitarian Visionary. Thus, as we engage with the Mastery Path of Relationship Equality, we are being provided an opportunity by the Cosmos to discover how we can more deeply love our uniqueness and individuality.  This is the work of the personal sign, Leo.  Simultaneously, we are also being provided an opportunity by the Cosmos to discover how we can more deeply empower and promote the uniqueness and individuality of our partner.  This is the work of the trans-personal sign, Aquarius.  Relationships, like a dance, requires two people ~ a partner.  So, while you are discovering new ways to empower your partner, your partner is also discovering new ways to empower you!  I love a win-win!!

In Shamanic Astrology, the relationship axis is determined by the signs in the 1st and 7th houses of a person's natal chart.  It designates how their Soul has chosen to experience, learn and grow through its relationships during this life. Everybody has their own unique relationship path that they are travelling.  If your Ascendant is Leo or Aquarius, then your personal relationship path is going through an amazing initiation process right now.  How exciting for you to get the booster power of the eclipse!

My consciousness has expanded the sacred container for Shamanic Astrology's relationship axis teachings. Humans are fundamentally social beings.  As social beings, we grow and evolve through our relationships. Relationships are necessary for us to be able to know ourselves.  Because of this, I believe that every time a relationship axis is activated by a New Moon and Full Moon, we collectively benefit from the aspect of relationship that is being initiated into a higher expression.  We collectively share in its initiation.

These initiations are experienced on the personal level and the global level.  There are many influences during an initiation. I am choosing to focus on the global wisdom we are receiving from Mars (Inner Masculine/Divine Masculine) and Venus (Inner Feminine/Divine Feminine.)  I am focusing on Mars and Venus because our Souls desire that we achieve Hieros Gamos ~ Sacred Marriage.  Sacred Marriage is the balancing of our Inner Masculine (Mars) and Inner Feminine (Venus).  Sacred Union is the integration of the masculine and feminine aspects of our Self.  Balance comes first, and then we integrate. The marriage occurs first, and then we consummate. When we have achieved Sacred Union, we can express the highest manifestation of our Soul's Purpose.

For the January ~ February 2017 activation of the Leo/Aquarius axis, we are looking to the Leo Archetype in the Fifth House and the Aquarius Archetype in 11th house.

The Leo Archetype encompasses:
  • the King and the Queen
  • the Leading Man and the Leading Woman
  • the Star
  • Creative Leadership
  • Self-Love
  • Inspires others to love themselves
You're supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for god's sake! ~ Iris Simpkins, The Holiday
In the Fifth House, Leo is desiring to spontaneously and creatively express its Truth.  Leo honors its partner's creativity and inspires its partner to express his/her own Truth.  Leo stands strong in its personal sovereignty, and honors the sovereignty of its partner.  There is no co-dependence with Leo!

The Aquarius Archetype encompasses:
  • the Cosmic Revolutionary
  • the Visionary
  • the Eccentric Inventor
  • the Eagle
  • Explores all dimensions of consciousness
  • Freedom
  • Unconditional Love for Humanity

    I've learned never to close my mind to in idea simply because it seems miraculous. ~ Dan Brown, The Lost Symbol
In the Eleventh House, Aquarius knows itself as a visionary.  Aquarius desires to make a unique contribution to Humanity, and just any contribution will not do.  It must be a contribution that will uplift the plight of Humanity, so that all are seen as equal. Aquarius is seeking Ascension. Experiencing itself as multi-dimensional, it desires freedom from the physical and emotional planes. Being fair-minded, Aquarius also desires freedom for everyone.

During the Aquarius New Moon, both Mars and Venus were in Pisces intimately connecting with their Divine Selves.  Mars was located at 29° Pisces, the Karmic Degree.  Here the Inner Masculine is learning how to maintain control over his aggression. The Divine Masculine is sending a message that patriarchy is on its way out.  Venus was conjunct Chiron (Shamanic Medicine).  Here the Inner Feminine is being assured by the Divine Feminine that Sacred Union can be achieved no fear of losing its individuality.  For both partners in a relationship, this new Consciousness being received from the Cosmos is preparing the ground for the seeds of Sacred Marriage and ultimately Sacred Union.  The seeds of sovereignty, honor and freedom in Right Relationship have been sown.  Mastery of Relationship Equality is descending from the Unmanifest (Source) to be experienced in the Manifest (our Relationships). The Inner Masculine is leading the way.

During the Leo Full Moon on Friday, February 10th, both Mars and Venus are now in Aries. The shift from the Unmanifest to the Manifest has transpired.  Our Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine have received the gifts from the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine.  Our relationship consciousness is made new!  A new milestone has been reached in the Masculine/Feminine dynamic on Earth.  Now is the time for us to focus on the freedom that Radical Radiant Self-Love allows. When we truly, madly, deeply love ourselves, unconditional love flows forth from our Hearts as a natural by-product.  Uranus (ruler of Aquarius) is still in Aries. While it is not in orb to Mars or Venus, there is no doubt they are being influenced by Uranus' cosmic reach.  Between the Lunar Eclipse and Uranus, you can definitely expect some some startling reformations.

I encourage you to allow all the information I have shared with you to integrate during this next week.  Be aware of shifts in your inner dialogue and how you express yourself within your relationship.  Take note of shifts in how your partner is relating to you. The keyword is empowerment. Empowerment flowing both ways!  With this Lunar Eclipse, you will experience greater relationship equality throughout the next six months.  If you don't already journal, I invite you to keep a journal between now and August, so that you will be aware of just how much your relationship has transformed.

Remember that I have only highlighted the Global ramifications of the Leo/Aquarius axis initiation. If you would like clarity on how this initiation is refining you, please contact me to schedule a personal Shamanic AstroSOL reading.

I appreciate you taking the time to let me know in the comments section below how this information has been helpful to you.  Thank you!

ATTENTION: Vigilant Mindful Awareness is Necessary NOW

Hello, Beloveds!

I have been asked to provide you with this CRUCIAL ALERT.

Today, I participated in an online conference with a group of women who are Divine Feminine Leaders and are doing essential work for Humanity and Our Planet.  I made a critical mistake that you need to know about so that you do not fall into the same "trap" that I did.

I joined the online meeting about 20 minutes before the scheduled start time.  During those 20 minutes, I was online with the presenter and other participants.  We were experiencing A LOT of "technical problems" with the teleconference system. Just before we were scheduled to begin, I grounded and saged myself with the intention of creating Sacred Space.  As I was saging myself, I begin to have waves of hot, prickly energy flow over me.  I could feel my head start to feel spacey.  At one moment, I could feel my body was nearly ready to faint.  I dismissed the experience, and chose to "shake it off."  During the hour that we were in conference, on numerous occasions the presenter mentioned that she too was feeling lightheaded like she was going to faint.  She could feel something wonky (my word) was going on with her energy, and like me, she was attributing the phenomenon to something else.  Throughout the conference, I was aware that A LOT of resistance was coming up within me.  Again, I dismissed it.

After the conference, I called the presenter to talk to her about her work.  I noticed significant interference on the call, and was having difficulty hearing her.  During our phone conversation, I again began to feel the hot prickly waves of energy, AND I could feel my Heart Chakra tightening! This got my attention!

I began to contemplate on what I had experienced to discern what it meant for me.  This is what was revealed to me:

The mistake that I made was that I did not ground, sage and call in Sacred Space BEFORE connecting online.

Our planet is currently in the midst of a volatile time.  We know globally that President-Elect Trump will be inaugurated on Friday, January 20, 2017.  What many are not aware of is that there has been a concerted effort to stage a coup d'etat to prevent President-Elect Trump from taking office.  The Elite (Babylonian Brother, Khazarian Mafia, Cabal ~ whichever name you know them by) has begun an unprecedented mode of encroachment towards this end.  They are utilizing our electromagnetic grid to assault us through our technology: wireless anything, cellphones, radio, television, internet connections.  Consider the myriad devices that we utilize: smartphones, androids, bluetooths, tablets, laptops, computers.  Consider the myriad platforms that are available to connect us: FaceBook and Messenger, Skype, Google Hangouts, WhatsApp, FaceTime, Zoom, FreeConferenceCall, etc.

This is not a psychic attack!  Be clear ... it is a GRID attack.  They are utilizing our planetary infrastructure.  You will physically feel this attack, just as both the online meeting presenter and I did. You will also experience "technical problems" similar to those that we encountered online and during our phone call.

Vigilant Mindful Awareness is NOW necessary.  Ground, sage and call-in Sacred Space BEFORE connecting with the grid through your devices and the platforms you use.  In addition, as an example, if you use Skype on your computer, do not walk away from your computer and allow Skype to remain idle.  Sign out of everything when you are done using it. Close out all apps; do not allow them to continue running in the background.  This is particularly relevant to FaceBook usage.  Above all, make sure you turn off your WiFi when you go to bed.  If you have been having relatively new sleep issues, this may be the contributing factor.

I must also provide caution around the Women's March on Washington scheduled for the day after the Inauguration, January 21, 2017.  This event will be a phenomenal presence of a Divine Feminine energy wave around our planet. There will be women gathering around the world in solidarity with those women in Washington.  Currently, there are 616 Sister Marches with an estimated 1,364,000 women.  This is a remarkable FOCUS of Creative Energy.

I ask all women participants to engage Vigilant Mindful Awareness.  Do not use your devices.  If you have them on you, keep them turned off.  Gather your sisters to ground and call-in Sacred Space BEFORE you start your march.  Hold a pure intention of Standing in Sovereignty throughout your march.  Those who are not marching can participate by connecting with the Divine Feminine energy and holding the Sister Marchers in Sacred Space with the intention for their Sovereignty to be sustained.

Fortunately, as soon as I received this clarity and understanding around what had happened to me, I was able to take proper action to clear myself from the energies of the attack, re-balance myself and restore my Sovereignty.  To do this, I used my shamanic medicine of Jharra™ Shamanic Luminous Energy Body Cleanse.

When I have done Jharra™ cleanses in the past, it has always invoked a graceful, meditative sweeping motion. Today, I was very surprised when the sweeping manifested as an extremely powerful motion.  I could feel the energy of a Samurai Warrior, and the sweeping was reminiscent of the slicing motion of a Samurai sword.

Because of my tremendous alarm over discovering this grid attack, I feel called to offer my shamanic medicine services to help others restore clarity and balance in their energy field ~ to restore your Sovereignty.  I truly consider this to be a State of Emergency.  As such, I am offering a one-time 50% discount on a Jharra shamanic cleanse, whether you choose one session or three.  This offer will be available through the Full Moon in Leo on February 10, 2017.

NOTE OF CAUTION: Please be aware that the New Moon in Aquarius will be next Friday, January 27, 2017.  Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, and Uranus & Aquarius rule our Electromagnetic Grid. Unfortunately, those in The Elite have the capability of utilizing the energies of Uranus to amplify their efforts.  Thus, I highly recommend that you take every precaution and continue to engage in Vigilant Mindful Awareness.

Many blessings to each of you, Beloveds.

Introducing Sofia Mona Lisa

Hello, Beloveds!

We are still within the window of our potent Full Moon in Cancer on January 12, 2017 ~ 3 days prior, day of, and 3 days after.  So much has been unfolding for me during this time of Shamanic Initiation from the Great Mother, as I know it has been for you.

Today, whilst doing my own personal Breath of Love shamanic journey, my Inner High Priestess made it known to me that She desired to be unveiled and introduced to our 3D reality.  Thus, I humbly present to you ... Sofia Mona Lisa.  

Now that my Inner High Priestess has been formally acknowledged, I am choosing to fully embody Her Presence.  Thus, with deep humility and gratitude, I relinquish my Shamanic Priestess name, Gaia Devi Kalikaji, and welcome my Inner High Priestess designation as Sofia Mona Lisa. Hereafter, my personal social media outlets will be identified by this name. 

When my Inner High Priestess revealed Her name to me, She emphasized to me that Her first name, Sofia, is spelled with an "f" rather than "ph."  I was curious about this significance, so I looked at the numerology related to both spellings.  I discovered that this notably influenced the frequency of the Purpose as determined by the Higher Self, that which our Soul desires for our greatest evolutionary fulfillment.  Sofia Mona Lisa carries the 9 frequency related to compassion, tolerance, understanding and service as a spiritual leader, teacher or healer.

Likewise, I realized that there was a significance to Her choosing today for Her unveiling.  Once again, I looked at the numerology.  Interestingly, the frequency of 7 (today's date) aligns with my own Natal North & South Nodes at 29° Cancer & Capricorn in the 1st & 7th Houses of "learning to be alone and not lonely" (North Node) and "not insisting on partnerships" (South Node).  The number 7 also carries the frequency of spirituality and mysticism.  Its destiny is to discover the Truth from within.  With the 7th House being the house of partnership, I am now walking in conscious sacred partnership with my Inner High Priestess.

I was fascinated when I discovered the deeper harmonies prevailing between these frequencies of "7" and "9" and the current transits in my astrological chart. Just yesterday, as a part of the Shamanic Initiation from the Great Mother, Luna activated my Natal North Node.  Every time our Natal North Node is activated, the Cosmos is bringing us back into alignment with our Soul's evolutionary path for this incarnation.  

Further, right now, BOTH transiting Venus (our Inner Feminine) and Mars (our Inner Masculine) are in Pisces (Source - Abode of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine)!  

This is where it gets truly amazing!! 

Transiting Venus (my Inner Feminine) is now conjunct my progressed Neptune (OPEN pipeline straight from Source directly to my Inner Feminine) AND my natal Jupiter (Guru's Grace ~ expansion of the Goddess). The choreography of these three planetary forces allowed for the desire of my Inner High Priestess to be made known and for Her to be revealed today.

In Sacred Partnership with Venus (my Inner Feminine), transiting Mars (my Inner Masculine) is now conjunct my progressed Chiron (Sacred Gift /Shamanic Medicine).  The Shamanic Medicine of Pisces is the ability to merge with your Divine Self without losing your individuality.  My Inner High Priestess is a manifestation of my Divine Feminine ~ the Goddess. For me, Pisces is in my 9th house ~ the very same frequency of my Inner High Priestess's name, Sofia Mona Lisa! ~ so, Chiron is also infusing me spiritual meaning and purpose. With Saturn (Cosmic Manifestor) in Sagittarius, along with my natal Venus (my Inner Feminine), this spiritual purpose is related to the highest expression of my Soul's Truth (the frequency of 7).

Thus, as my Inner Feminine has been receiving through the open pipeline of Source, my Inner Masculine has been activating the unveiling of my Inner High Priestess.  Truly, this is a spectacular and beautiful expression of the Cosmic Ecstatic Dance of Shiva and Shakti that is being played out on both stages of the As Above, So Below and the As Within, So Without!

If your Heart is desiring clarity as to how the Eternal Dance of Shiva and Shakti is playing out on your own unique stage, please email me to schedule a Shamanic AstroSOL™ reading.  When you mention this post, you will receive a 20% discount.  This offer expires January 31st.

Many blessings to you!

Synchronicity from The Beetle of Our Lady

Hello, Beloveds!

Yesterday, I published my Full Moon in Cancer report, Shamanic Initiation from the Great Mother. Later that evening, three hours later, I found this video on my FaceBook wall:

Shared from Green Nation

I was so thrilled to see this.  It was definitely a moment of synchronicity.  I deeply appreciate this nod from the Great Mother in validating the message I shared about the significance of the Full Moon/Grand Cross.  Further, the number 3 represents the Trinity.  The Trinity is most often associated with the Divine Father ~ Father, Son and Holy Ghost.  The Trinity is ALSO associated with the Divine Mother (As Above, So Below) ~   Mother (Shakti - Mary), Nature (Prakriti - Gaia) and Wisdom (MahaDurga - Sophia).

When you read my Full Moon in Cancer report, you will understand the meaning of the Spider and the significance behind the weaving of the web in the video.

Here is some information on the Medicine of the Ladybug
Ladybug’s medicine includes carrying the golden strand that leads to the centre of the universe, past lives, spiritual enlightenment, death and rebirth, renewal, regeneration, fearlessness, protection, good luck, wishes being fulfilled, protection. ...
Though small in size the ladybug is fearless. As fear cannot exist amongst joy, the ladybug brings a message of promise, for they get us back in touch with the joy of living – we must let go of our fears and go back to our roots, to love. We are also taught to restore our trust and faith in the universe, we have to get over ourselves, our egos, and allow life to take its course going with the flow. ...
The name ladybug has its roots in the middle ages, when it was dedicated to the Virgin Mary and called the beetle of our lady.  ~ Ina Wolcott
The Virgin Mary is known as The Queen of the Universe, and thus She is a beautiful representation of the Great Mother.  This video clearly demonstrates to me the Shamanic Initiation that the Great Mother has catalyzed within us. I also feel it illustrates our journey as we "reweave our relationship with Her."  We are assured that She is always with us!

Many blessings!!

Shamanic Initiation from the Great Mother

Today is the first full moon of 2017, a very powerfully transforming full moon in Cancer.  This Cancer Moon is so powerfully transforming because it is activating our Inner Feminine more deeply than She has ever been activated in our lifetime.

This Cancer Moon is one part of an astrological Grand Cross.  A Grand Cross is transformative - truly life-changing - because it stimulates, raises and expands the frequencies of all of our natural elements to provoke a breakthrough within us: Cancer (Water), Capricorn (Earth), Libra (Air) and Aries (Fire). The generation of this crucible engages the element of Spirit being invoked by Source, and in this Grand Cross, by the Divine Feminine ~ Goddess of Source, the Great Mother Herself.

This Grand Cross is truly a Shamanic Initiation of Cosmic magnitude - fully multidimensional.  It prompts our Inner Feminine (Earth-Water) and our Inner Masculine (Air-Fire) to anticipate this new spiral in the journey. The Great Mother has called in the Four Directions to create Sacred Space for Us:  East (Libra - Air), South (Cancer - Water), West (Aires - Fire) and North (Capricorn - Earth).  She has called in the powerful energies of our Solar System's planets to stand with us as allies, to align their frequencies with us and to support us in our process, and thus we have all of our planets in direct motion - "a rare astrological event."

Our relationship with the Divine Feminine ~ Goddess ~ Great Mother has been deeply wounded through the past 6,000 years of Patriarchy ~ The Great Illness.  This was when "the head was cut off of the snake."  This severed us from our multidimensional selves.  We lost connection with and forgot the Snake Mysteries.  It severed us from our Shakti leaving us no longer connected to the dynamic forces that move through the Universe.  We lost our empowerment.  We ALL lost our Mother.  Every person, man and woman, carries this deep wound.  It is represented in your natal chart by Black Moon Lilith.  It has been identified as "the mother wound" by Bethany Webster.  Every one of us must heal this wound within ourselves, so that each human being can embody the Divine Feminine power and realign with their Inner Feminine.

What are we "to do" to receive this Shamanic Initiation by the Great Mother?  We BREATHE.  Our breath is our most "tangible" expression of our Spirit ~ our Soul.  We ALLOW.  Allowing is how we Surrender to Her.  Our Spirit's deepest desire is to co-create with Source. Our surrender to the Goddess facilitates the co-creative process.  In our allowing, we become AWARE.  By being AWARE, we consciously experience the rebalancing of our Inner Feminine.

In our personal lives, our families and our communities, we have been in relationship with the Great Mother through Nature (Earth - Gaia) and our Elders, our Grandmothers.  It is a relationship that hangs on by a thread.  The Spider is a symbol of the Grandmother:
As the weaver of the web, the spider symbolizes the spirit of creation. In several traditions, she’s the totemic symbol of the Mother, strong feminine energy. In Ancient Egypt, the spider was used as a symbol to represent the goddess of the Divine Mother, Neith. In some American Indian tribes, it is considered as the symbol for the creator of the world and by extension is associated with the female creative energy. ~
The Great Mother's Shamanic Initiation is prompting us and inspiring us to reweave our relationship with Her.  The Grand Cross provides an exquisite foundation for us upon which we can take the frayed and lost threads to begin reweaving our new interconnection ~ where that which was once severed becomes reunited.

As we reweave our new channel to the Great Mother, we open to our multidimensional Self.  The portals to our multidimensional Self are found in our centers of spiritual power, our chakras.  The most significant chakra for this Shamanic Initiation is the Root Chakra.  The Root Chakra is the seat of Shakti.  The Root Chakra is where Shakti lies as the coiled snake.  There is a lot of fear being carried by humanity in the Root Chakra.  This fear goes back to being severed from our multidimensional selves and losing our connection to the Great Mother.  We were told to fear the snake!!  Suddenly, we felt lost, and we no longer felt safe!  We still don't feel safe. We don't feel safe being in our bodies.  We don't feel safe being on this planet.

Through the Shamanic Initiation of this Cancer Full Moon, the Great Mother Herself is healing this wound.  She is embracing us in Her arms.  Who does not feel safe in their mother's arms?  All of us long for our mother's embrace.  There is no safer place to be than in her embrace.  The Water Element of the Cancer Full Moon is providing us with an EMOTIONAL HEALING.  This emotional healing is creating a safe space within us where Pluto, ruler of the water sign Scorpio, will support us in renewing our relationship with Shakti and becoming reacquainted with the Snake Mysteries.

Simultaneously, Uranus is sending us the Fire of the Goddess into our Sacral (2nd) Chakra to reignite our Creative Life Force.  The Lamp's flame is brilliant.  This Fire of the Goddess charges us to become liberated!  We freely rebuild our Sacred Inner Temple.  This is The Third Temple!  Here the Great Mother reinstalls the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies.  Held within the Ark of the Covenant are the Sword and the Cup.

In concert, the Sun, once again with Pluto's support, is beaming its golden rays of empowerment into our Solar Plexus (3rd) Chakra.

Through the Grace of Jupiter, the Spirit's urge to connect with Source, is realized as Shakti travels from the Root Chakra, through the Sacral Chakra and the Solar Plexus Chakra, gathering the Gifts within each, and arrives within the Heart Chakra to consecrate the Seat of the Soul with Feminine Wisdom.  Here, the Sword (Inner Masculine) and the Cup (Inner Feminine) bequeath their wealth to the Sacred Inner Temple.  Together, the Inner Masculine and the Inner Feminine join in Sacred Union to expand into New Horizons.

The New Horizons will be discovered by you over the course of 2017.  As you journey, stay mindful of your new relationship with the Great Mother.  Attune to your lower chakras to recieve Her guidance. The Root Chakra will connect you to aspects of Her as Earth Goddesses: Ceres and Demeter; the Sacral Chakra will connect you to aspects of Her as Water (fertility and abundance) Goddesses: Juno and Mata Gangaji; the Solar Plexus Chakra will connect you to aspects of Her as Fire: Pele and Sekhmet.  The Heart Chakra is LOVE.  Here is where you will feel the Presence and the Love of the Mother.  As your Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine bask in Her Love, you will co-create a Life of JOY.

Many blessings to you, Beloveds, on this amazing journey of creation and discovery.
